Our Services

Science and Innovation Network

SIN Chile works to share best practice on policies in science and innovation from the UK with Chile’s government Ministries, universities and research funding institutions. In addition, we provide strategic information on science, technology, research and innovation to UK stakeholders and engage in world class science events in Chile.

We foster high level collaborations and strengthen relations between both countries’ academic communities. Our strategic priorities include promoting partnerships in global health and life sciences, climate change and clean energy, oceans, space and polar research.

Legacy Newton Fund

From 2014 to 2017 (until Chile’s graduation from the DAC-list of developing countries), the Newton-Picarte Fund funded joint UK-Chile initiatives to grow joint research and innovation. The primary focus was on projects in the sectors of energy; water and minerals; oceans; Antarctic research; urbanisation; health; economic development and social welfare; and environment, climate variability and change.

Many strong UK-Chile research and innovation partnerships remain in place due to this collaboration. For more information please contact the Head of Science and Innovation.
